I’ve been feeling inspired to put this post together for some time now. I know during the summer, many of us like to travel, go on vacation, go to the cottage, have sleepovers, etc. As a girl, it’s hard to travel light. Even worst if you’re flying (TSA suggests that we keep liquids, gels, and aerosols in a 1 quart-size, clear plastic, zip-top bag – well its more of a rule than a suggestion). So here are my suggestions!
One thing to look for is multi-purpose make up palettes. Some thing that will include eyeshadows, blush, highlighters, and bronzers in one neat compact case. Another way to get extra usage out of your products is to look for multi-purpose items like NARS The Multiple or Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge. Here are a few suggestions that I put together.
1. Urban Decay, Naked Flushed in Streak
Looks like Urban Decay expanded their cheek palette line. Streak contains a matte pale bronzer, shimmery peach highlighter, and a bright coral blush. Now the two previous palettes were not for me (the bronzers were too orange for my pale complexion). I haven’t seen this in person yet – but it looks promising! C$35 at Sephora and you’re all covered for cheeks!
2. Charlotte Tilbury, Filmstar Bronze & Glow
I’ve heard so much about this duo – unfortunately it’s not available in Canada, but you can find it at Selfringes, Charlotte Tilbury, and NET-A-PORTER. If I don’t travel to Europe this year – I may pull the plunge and pay the whopping £25.00 to ship it here. This just looks like the perfect sculpt and highlight shade.
3. Smashbox, Step-by-Step Contour Kit
Contouring is very in right now. Probably started around the Kardashian phenomenon. I think this palette is perfect for medium to dark girls. C$52 at Sephora – currently sold out online.
4. Too Faced, The Secret To No Makeup Makeup
I think this palette will create the perfect “fresh face” makeup look. You got your eyeshadows, 2 blushes and a highlight color – what more could you ask for? C$48 at Sephora. I must refrain myself from buying this.
5. LORAC, Pro to go
In this palette you have 6 lovely eyeshadows, 2 blushes and a bronzer. I gave this palette to Milan as a early birthday present and she seems to be very happy with it! $38 USD at Ulta.
6. Josie Maran, Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Poppy Paradise
I think this pot can be used on cheeks and lips. The full sized jar is C$26 at Sephora and I’ve seen a baby version for C$15?
Hopefully this post helped! Feel free to use this post a gift guide for a girlfriend 🙂
